Not the best recording, being tinny and somewhat insubstantial. Haven't listened to the second set yet.
Now I have. An average show at best, like most of August '81. Not a patch on Compton or the Aladdin.

Love this one
This was one of my 1st bootlegs as a kid and we played it to death I LOVE just about everything that happened here. I think its the BEST Drumz and Space that ever was.

One of 81s best...
One of the best shows of 1981. Shakedown Street and e Wheel are all timers. Very strong first set, highlighted by Let It Grow>China>Rider sequence. Second set opens with the . jammed out Shakedown. Wheel is outstanding, perhaps the best version of the 80s. The Brent Mydland "blues" tune is a buzzkill. Extended Spanish jam out of drums. End of show tunes are well played. May not be a 5.0 show, but it is closer to 5 than to 4. Outstanding quality soundboard for 1981.

Shakedown Never Trust
Really fabulous Jerry squawking on the ol' vibrola.
His guitar work jus penetrates ya...
Amazing heart wrenching Spanish Jam that will place you into a catatonic flip.
20 or so stars out of 5.

Top show of 1981
Thanks for this long needed upgrade.
This show is quite a standout in a year of quite hit or sometimes miss shows. Definitely the strongest show of the summer tour by far.
Standout performances of The Wheel (second set with an extended jam), in fact, probably the best Wheel of the 1980s.
First performance of Never Trust a Woman (Good Times Blues) with an extended Jerry, Brent & Rhythm Devils Jam afterward.
Found the old patched soundboard years ago on the archive and it has been a favorite listen through ever since.
